1. Personal injury. PTSD is a well-known consequence of trauma. However, it is not the only such condition. In my report I look for every known mental disorder that may result from trauma. It is important that no mental condition is missed when preparing reports in personal injury claims. I have a 20 year of diagnosing and treating mental disorders. My reports are prepared to the standards set by the most reputable expert witness organisations in the UK.

2. Independent second opinion in any area of adult mental health. Here, as in my other areas of practice, I bring to bear my best clinical qualities as consultant psychiatrist. Expert reports are of no value if the experts does not demonstrate a good knowledge of the condition that they are writing about

3. Mental disorder in sentencing. If you have mental disorder, and you believe that it should be considered in court proceedings, including sentencing, then I may be able to assist.

4. Mental capacity to conduct proceedings, including capacity to make a will. I assess capacity to make decisions in various areas, including taking part in court proceedings. It may also interest you to know that if you have evidence that suggest that your client may have lacked the mental capacity to make an important decision then you may be able to retrospectively challenge that decision, whether it is about making a will or taking part in bankruptcy proceedings.

5. Fitness to plead. Fitness to plead report is not restricted to the expertise of forensic psychiatry. As a general psychiatrist I carry out several FTP reports every year.

6. Other areas. If you are not sure whether I could be help, email your query and I'll respond as soon as possible.

I am also a member of the Expert Witness Institute.
